She has claimed PAC members knowingly acted outside their remit, seeking commercial information and details of private earnings, rather than inquiring solely into Rehab services paid for by the HSE and Solas.

In the High Court, she claimed to have been subjected to "bullying, harassment and persecution", which led her to attempt suicide.

Ms Burton said: "I think part of the aggressive questioning was so aggressive that a suspect in a police station wouldn't face the same drawn-out questioning without any kind of comfort breaks or the ability to refer to advice."

Fianna Fáil finance spokesman Michael McGrath said he felt the Ceann Comhairle "spoke on behalf of the Oireachtas".
